Prokofiev said that his Classical Symphony was (amongst other things) an exercise in not using a piano to compose.

Sullivan never used a piano to compose. (Well, hardly ever.)

But I don't see how the more harmonically adventurous composers of the twentieth centuries could have done otherwise.

I assume we're not talking about composing piano music but music for other instruments, especially an orchestra. I suppose the thing is the end result shouldn't sound like orchestrated piano music. Can anyone think of a piece for orchestra that sounds as such?
